The Ligtit in ttie Oeariiig A TALE of the NORTH COUNTRY in the TIME of SILAS WRIGHT By IRVING BACHELLER. Author of EE EN HOLDEN. D'RI AND X. DABJtJl OF THE BLESSED ISLES. KEEPING UP WITH LIZZIE. Etc. Etc n BARTON LEARNS OF THE EXISTENCE OF A WONDER FUL POWER KNOWN AS "MONEY." Synopsis. Barton Baynes, an orphan, goes to live with his uncle, Peabody Baynes, and his Aunt Deel on a farm on Rattleroad, in a neighborhood called Lickitysplit, about the year 1826, He meets Sally Dunkelberg. about his own age. but socially of a class above the Bayneses, and is fascinated by her pretty face and fine clothes. Barton also meets Roving Kate, known in the neighborhood as the "Silent Woman." Amos Grimshaw, a young son of the richest man in the town skip, is a visitor at the Baynes home and Roving Kate tells the boys' fortunes, predicting a bright future for Barton and death on the gallows for Amos. Reproved for an act of boyish mischief. Barton runs away, intending to make his home with the Dunkelbergs. He reaches Canton and fails asleep on a porch. There he is found by Silas Wright, Jr.. a man prominent in public affairs, who, knowing Peabody Baynes, takes Barton home after huying him new clothes. Silas Wright evinces much interest in Barton and sends a box of books and magazines to the Baynes home. A short time later the election of Mr. Wright to the United States senate is announced. CHAPTER V. 5 The Great Stranger Some strangers came along the road those days hunters, peddlers and the like and their coming filled me with a joy which mostly went away with them, I regret to say. None of these, however, appealed to my Imagination as did old Kate. But there was one stranger greater than she greater indeed, than any other who came into Rattleroad. He came rarely and would not be long detained. How curiously we looked at him, knowing his fame and power! This great stranger was Money. I shall never forget the day that my uncle showed me a dollar bill and a little shiny, gold coin and three pieces of silver, nor can I forget how carefully he watched them while they lay in my hands and presently put them back into his wallet. That was long before the time of which I am writing. I remember hearing him say, one day of that year, when I asked him to take us to the Caravan of Wild Beasts which was coming to the village : "I'm sorry, but it's been a hundred Sundays since I had a dollar in my wallet for more than ten minutes." I have his old account book for the years of 1837 and 1S38. Here are eome of the entries: "Balanced accounts with J. Doro thy and gave him my note for $2.15 to be paid in salts January 1, 1S38. Sold ten bushels of wheat to E. Miner at 90 cents, to bo paid in giiods. "Sold two sheep to Flaius Curtis and took his note for $6, payable in boots on or before March thi first. Only one entry in more than a hundred mention money, and this was the sum of eleven cents received in balance from a neighbor. So it will be seen that a spirit of mutual .accommodation served to help us ' over the rough going. Mr. Grimshaw, however, demanded his pay in cash and that I find was main Jy the habit of the money-lenders. VVe were poor but our poverty was not like that of these days in which II am writing. It wss proud and cleanly and well-fed. Our fathers ihad seen heroic service in the wars And we knew It. I was twelve years old when I be gan to be the reader for our little family. Aunt Deel had - long com plained that she couldn't keep up with her knitting and read so much. We , had not' seen Mr. Wright for nearly two years, but he had sent us, the novels of Sir Walter Scott and I had led them heart deep into t?e creed battles of pid Mortality. Then came the evil days of 1837, when the story of our lives began to quicken its pace and excite our inter est in its" coming chapters. It gave us enough to think of, God knows. Wild speculations in land and the Amoricnn nfinpr-moiipv svstem hnd brought us into rough going. The banks of the city of New York had suspended payment of their notes. They could no longer meet their en gagements. As usual, the burden fell heaviest on the poor. It was hard to get money even for black salts. Uncle Peabody had been silent and depressed for a month or more. He had signed a note for Rodney Barnes, a cousin, long before and was afraid fhof Via vvrvnlr! hflve trt rnv it" T didn't know what a note was and I remem ber that one night, when I lay think ing about it, I de-Jded that it must be something in th-? nature of horse colic. My uncle tol-f me that a note was a trouble which attacked the brain instead of the stomach. One autumn day in Canton Uncle Peabody traded three sheep and twen ty Dusneis or wneai lor a cook stove and brought it home in the big wagon. Rodney Barnes came with him to help set up the stove. He was a big giant of a man with the longest nose in the township. I have often wondered how any one would solve the problem of kissing Mr. Barnes in the immediate region of his nose, the same being "in the nature of a defense. That evening I was chiefly inter ested in ' the stove, ' What a joy it was to me with its damper and grid died and high oven and the shiny edge on Its hearth ! It rivaled, in its nov elty and charm, any tin peddler's cart that ever came to our door. John Axtell and his wife., who had seen It pass their house, hurried over for a look, at It. Every hand was on the stove as we tenderly carried it into the house, piece by piece, and set it up. - Then they cut a hole in the up per floor and the stone chimney and fitted the pipe. How keenly we watched the building of the fire. How quickly it roared and began to heat tbj room ! - When the Axtells had , gone away Aunt Deel said: ' "It's grand! It is sartin but Tra 'frald we can't afford it ayes I be!" "We can't afford to freeze any longer. I made up my mind that we couldu't go through another winter as we have." was my uncle's answer. "How much did it cost?" she asked. "Not Jnuch differ'nt from thirty four dollars in sheep and grain." he answered. xvuuuey xsarnes stayed to supper and spent a part of the evening with us. Like other settlers there, Mr. Barnes was a cheerful optimist. Every thing looked good to him until it turned out badly. He told how he had heard that It was a growing country near the great water highway of the St. Lawrence. Prosperous towns were building up in it. There were going to be great cities in Northern New York. There were rich stores of lead and iron in the rocks. Mr. Barnes had bought two hundred acres at ten dollars an acre. He had to pay a fee of five per cent, to Grimshaw's lawyer for the survey and the papers. This left him owing fourteen hundred dollars on his farm much more than it was worth. Our cousin twisted the poker in his great hands until it squeaked as he stood before my uncle and said: "My wife and I have chopped and burnt and pried and hauled rocks an' shoveled dung an' milked an churned until we are worn out. For almost twenty years we've been workin' days an' nights an' Sundays. My mortgage was over-due, I owed six hundred dol lars on it. I thought it all over one day an' went up to Grimshaw's an' took him by the back of the neck and shook him. He said he would drive me out o' th country. He gave me six months to pay up. I had to pay or lose the land. I got the money on the note that you signed over in Potsdam. Nobody in Can ton would 'a' dared to lend it to me." "Why?" my uncle asked. "'Frald o' Grimshaw. He didn't want me to be able to pay. it. The place is worth more than six hundred dollars now that's the reason. I in tended to cut some timber an haul It to the village this winter so I could pay a part o' the note an' git more time as I told ye, but the roads have been so bad I couldn't do any iul mV -My ttruile went and took a drink at the wat?r pail. I saw by bis face that he was unusually wrought up. "My heavens an earth!" he ex claimed as he sat down again. "It's the brain colic," I said to myself as I looked at him. Mr. Barnes seemed to have it also. "Too much note." I whispered. "I'm awful sorry, but I've done everything I could," said Mr. Barnes. "Ain't there somebody that'll take another mortgage? it ought to be safe now," my uncle suggested. "Money is so tight it can't be done. The bank has got all the money an Grimshaw owns the bank. Tve tried and tried, but I'll make you safe. I'll give, you a mortgage until I can turn 'round." So I: saw how Rodney Barnes, like other settlers in Lickitysplit, had gone ' into bondage to the laadlord. "How much do you owe on lhi3 place?" Barnes asked! "Seven hundred an fifty dollars," said my uncle. "Is it due?" "It's been due a year an If I have to pay that note I'll be short my in terest." "God o Israel! I'm scalrt," said Uncle Peabody. Down crashed the stick of wood into the box. "What about?" "It would be like him to put the screws on you now. You've got be tween him an' his prey. You've taken the mouse away from the cat." 1 remember the little panic that fell on us then. I could see tears in the eyes of Aunt Deel as she sat with her head leaning wearily on her hand. . . "If he does 111 do all I can, said Barnes, "whatever I've got will be yours." Rodney Barnes left us, and I re member how Uncle Peabody stood in the middle of the floor and . whistled the merriest tune he knew. "Stand right up here," he called in his most cheerful tone. "Stand -right up here before me, both o ye;" I got Aunt Deel by the hand and led her toward my uncle. We stood facing him. "Stand stralghter," he demanded. "Now, altogether. One, two, three, ready sing." He. beat time with his hand In imi tation of the singing , master at the schoolhouse and we joined him in singing an old tune which began: "Oh, keep my heart from sadness, God." This irresistible spirit of the man bridged a bad hour and got us off to bed in fairly good condition. A few days later the note came due and its owner insisted upon full payment. There was such a clamor for money those days! I remember ' that my aunt had sixty dollars which she I had saved, little by little, by selling eggs and chickens. She had planned to use it to buy a tombstone for her mother and father a long-cherished ambition. My uncle needed the most of it to help pay the note. We drove to Potsdam on that sad errand and what a time we had getting there and back in deep mud and sand and jolting over corduroys! "Bart." my uncle said the next kevenlng. as I took down the book to read. "I guess we'd better talk things over a little tonight. These are hard times. If we can find any body with money enough to buy 'em I dunno but we better sell the sheep." "If you hadn't been a fool." my aunt exclaimed with a look of great distress "ayes ! If . you hadn't been a fool." "I'm just what I be, an I ain't so big a fool that I need to be reminded of it," said my uncle. "I'll stay home an work," I pro posed bravely. "You ain't old enough for that." sighed Aunt Deel. "I want to keep you in school." said Uncle Peabody, who 'sat making a splint broom. While we were talking in walked Benjamin Grimshaw the rich man of the hills. He didn't stop to knock, but walked right in as if the house ih'imi't "One, Two, Three, Ready Sing." were his own. It . was common gos sip that he held a mortgage on every acre of the countryside. I had never liked him, for he was a stern-eyed man who was always scolding some body, and J had not forgotten what his son had said of him. "Good night!" he exclaimea curtly, as he sat down and set his cane be tween his feet and rested his hands upon it. He spoke hoarsely and 1 remember the carious notion came to me that he looked like our old ram. He wore a thin, gray beard under his chin. His mouth was shut tight in a long line curving downward a lit tle at the ends. My uncle used to say that his mouth was .made to keep his thoughts from leaking and going to waste. He had a big body, a big chin, a big mouth, a big nose and big ears and hands. His eyes lay small in this setting of bigness. "Why, Mr. Grimshaw, it's years since you've been in our house ayes!" said Aunt Deel. "I suppose it is," he answered rath er sharply. "I don't have much time to get around. I have to work. There's some people seem to be able to git along without It. I see you've got one o' these newfangled stoves," he added as he looked It over. "Huh ! ENROLLED UNDER RED CROSS Greek Girls, Trained Here as Nurses, Will Do'Work of'Mercy in Their Own Country. Greek girls in the uniforms of American Red Cross nurses are now serving in the hospitals of Greece. These girls are part of a number from New England who, anxious to help their fellow countrymen, detided to become nursing aids, says the public information ' bureau, Washington. They enrolled In training . courses in the Massachusetts General hospital and other Boston hospitals, where they soon became proficient in their work. Recently four of them, who had practically completed their courses, decided that they would like to go back to Greece with the Ameri can mission which was just then about to leave. 'Through the Greek legation they applied for permission to go with this mission as members of the Amer ican Red Cross. Now they are not only serving their own people, but are also creating a. feeling In Greece which cements the long friendship of the Greeks with America. Although no American troops have been landed on Greek soiU the people are nevertheless pleased with the sight of an Ameri can uniform, no matter what branch of the service it represents. ' Another group of Greek girls in ilW ill I 5 ' ' Rich folks can have anything they want." Uncle Peabody had sat splintering the long stlek of yellow .birch. I ob served that the jackknife trembled In his hand. His tone had a touch of unnaturalness. proceeding no doubt from his fear of the man before him, as he said: "Wifen I bought that stove I felt richer than I do now. I had almost enough to settle with you up to date, but I signed a note for a friend and had to pay it. " "Ayuh! I suppose so," Grimshaw answered in a tone of bitter irony which cut me like a knife-blade, young as I was. "What business have you slgnin notes an givin away money which ain't yours to give I'd like to know? What business have you actin like a rich man when you can't pay yer honest debts? I'd like to know that, too?" . "If I've ever acted like a rich man It's been when I wa'n't looklnY said Uncle Peabody. "What business have you to go en largin yer family takin another mouth to feed and another body to spin for? That costs money. I want to tell you one thing, Baynes. you've got to pay up or git out o' here." He raised his cane and shook it in the air as he spoke. "Oh, I ain't no doubt o that," said' Uncle Peabody. "You'll have to have yer money that's sure; an you will have it If I live, every cent of it. This boy Is goin to be a great help to me you don't know what a good boy he Is and what a comfort he's been to us !" These words of my teloved uncle, uncovered my emotions so that I put my elbow on the wood-box and leaned my head jpon it and sobbed. "I ain't goin to be hard on ye, Baynes," said Mr. Grimshaw as be rose from his chair; "I'll give ye three months to see what you can do. I wouldn't wonder if the boy would turn out all right. He's big an' cordy of his age and a purty likely boy, they tell me." Mr. Grimshaw opened the door and stood for a moment looking at us and added in a milder tone: "You've got one o' the best farms in this town an if ye work hard an' use commoa sense ye ought to be "out o' debt in five jears mebbe less." He closed the door and went away. Neither of us moved or spoke as we listened to his footsteps on the gravel path that went down to the. road and to the sound of his buggy as he drove away. Then Uncle Peabody broke the silence by saying: "He's the dam'dest " He stopped, set the half-splintered stick aside, closed his jackknife and went to the water-pail to cool his emotions with a drink. Aunt Deel took up the subject where he had dropped it, as if no-half-expressed sentiment would satisfy her, saying : " old skinflint that ever lived in this world, ayes! I ain't goin to hold my opinion o that man no longer, ayes! I can't. It's too pow erful ayes !" Having recovered ray composure I repeated that I should like to give up school and stay at home and work. Aunt Dee' interrupted me by say ing: "I have an idee that Sile Wright will Leip us ayes ! He's comin' home an' you better go down an see him ayes! . Hadn't ye?" "Bart an I'll go down to-morrer," said Uncle Peabody. Some fourteen months before that day my uncle had taken me to Pots dam and traded grain and salts for what he called a "rip roarin' fine suit o' clothes" with boots and cap and shirt and collar and necktie to match. I having earned them by' sawing and cording wood at three shillings a cord. How often we looked back to those better days! The clothes had been too big for me and I had had to wuit until my growth had taken up the "slack" In my coat and trousers before I could venture out of the neighbortood. I had tried them on every week or so for a long time. Now lay statui; filled mem handsomely and tboy filled me with a pride and salsfa-itioii which I had never known before. "Now may' the Lord help ye to be careful awful, terrible careful o them clothes every minute o this day," Aunt Dee? cautioned as she looked at me. "Don't git no horse sweat nor wagon greake on 'em." Barton gets new inspiration from the word3 of the great Silas Wright, who plans for the education of the boy when he is old enough to leave home for school. (TO BE CONTINUED.) Boston is taking up courses at Sim mons college in dietetics, domestic science and home aid. These girls also expect shortly to sail for Greece. Our Wonderful Language. A certain merchant died, leaving to his only son the conduct of his exten sive business, and great doubt was ex pressed in some quarters whether the young man possessed the ability to car ry out the father's policies. "Well," said one kindly disposed friend, "for my part, I think Henry Is very bright and capable. I'm sure, he will succeed. ' "Perhaps you're right." said another friend. "Henry is undoubtedly a clev er fellow, but, take It from me, old man. he hasn't got the head to fill his father's shoes." All Mutt Be Earned. All external good has Its tax, and If It come without desert or sweat, has no root in me and the next wind will blow it away. But all the good of nature Is the soul's and may be had. If paid for In nature's lawful coin, that Is, by labor which the heart and the head allow. I no longer wish to meet a good I do not earn. Emerson. Fully ' Explained.

IE lilliSHIP OF THI mi mm Alms and Ideals cf the United States and Canada Will Soon Be Signed. The war is over, peace will soon be signed," the fighting nations have sheathed their swords, and the day of reconstruction has come. What of it! Hundreds of thousands of men, tak en from the fields of husbandry, from the ranks of labor, from the four walla of the counting house, and the con fines of the workshop, taken from them to do their part, their large part, in the prevention of the spoliation of the world, and in the meantime removed from, the gear of common everyday life, will be returned, only to find In many cases old positions filled, the machinery with which they were for merly attachpd dislocated. Are they to become aimless wan derers, with the ultimate possibility of augmenting an army of menacing loafers? If they do It it Is because their ability to assist In laying new founda tions, in building up much required structures, is underestimted. Men who have fought as they have fought, who have risked and faced dangers as they have, are not of the caliber likely to flinch when It comes to the resto ration of what the enemy partially de stroyed, when it comes to the recon struction of the world the ideals of which they had in view when they took part in the great struggle whose Divine purpose was to bring about this re construction. Inured to toil, thoughtles of fatigue, trained in initiative and hardened by their outdoor existence they will re turn better and stronger men, boys will have matured and young men will have developed. They will decide of themselves lines of action and thought, and what their future snoula and win be. On the field of battle they developed alertness and wisdom, and they will return with both shedding from every pore. Action was their by-word and It will stand them in good stead now that the din of the battle no longer rings In their ears, or the zero hour signals them to the fray, and it will continue during their entire existence. But If they return to find their old avocation gone, their places filled, the Institutions with which they were con nected no longer exist, new walks of life and employment must be opened to them. It may be that the counting house, the factory, the workshop will have lost their attraction. The return ed soldier will look elsewhere for em ployment; within his reach there is al ways the "Forward-to-the-Lond" ne cessity. In this lies the remedy that will not only take care of a multitude of those who may not be able to return to their former occupations, whose de sires are not to do so, whose health prohibits them from Indoor life or whose outdoor habits from the past one, two, three or four years have given them such a taste and desire for it that confinement would be un bearable. Farm life will thus appeal o them, and the indications are that it -Ill be taken advantage of by thou sands. It means much to them as well as to the Continent of America that provides the opportunity to the world at large, and to the stricken and fam ished nations of Europe, who, not only today, but for years to come, will re quire the sustenance that can only largely be supplied by the United States and Canada. By following the pursuit of agriculture the returned soldier will continue the cause he so greatly advanced when fighting on the field of battle. Both countries have undeveloped areas yet open to settle ment. There Is little need here to direct attention to the wealth that has come to the farmers of Canada within the past few years. It Is not only in grain growing that unqualified and almost unequaled success has followed hon est effort, but the raising of horses, cattle, sheep and hogs has been large source of profit. These are facts that are well known to the many friends end acquaintances of the thousands of farmers from the United States who have acquired wealth on the prairies of Western Canada. Farms of from one hundred and sixty to six hundred and forty acres of the richest soil may be secured on reasonable terms, and with n excellent climate with a school V' ,T((l,ri T.W 111 H XA system ejual to any in the world, and dej-iroble social conditions, little else could be asked. Canadian statesmen are today busily engaged planning for the future of the returned soldier with a view to making him Independent of state help after the immediate necessary assistance has been . granted, the main idea being to show in the fullest degree the country's appreciation of the services he has rendered. But, now that the war is ended, and the fact apparent that of all avocations the most profitable and independent Is that of the farmer, there will be a strong desire to secure farm lands for cultivation. Canada offers the oppor tunity to those seeking, not as specula tion but as production. The deepest interest is taken by Federal and Pro vincial authorities to further the wel fare of the farmer and secure a maxi mum return for his efforts. Large sums of money are spent In educational and experimental work. Engaged in Experimental and Demonstration farms, and in the agricultural colleges, are men of the highest technical knowl edge and practical experience, some be ing professors of international reputa tion. The results of experiments and tests are free and available to aLL Ed ucational opportunities for farmers are the concern of the Government and appreciation is shown by ihe number of fanners who attend the free courses. Agriculture in Canada has reached a high standard, notwithstanding which lands, are low in price. Thus upon the United States and Canada for many years will rest the great burden of feeding the world. With free Interchange of travel, diffi culties of crossing and recrossing re moved, Canada may look for a speedy resumption of the large influx of set tlers from the United States which pre vailed previous to the war. During the war period there was a dread of something, no one seemed to know what : If the American went to Canada he might be conscripted, put In prison, or In his attempt to cross the border he would meet with Innumerable difficul t'es. most of which, of course, was un true. These untruths were circulated for a purpose by an element, which, it was discovered had an interest In fo menting and creating trouble and dis trust between two peoples whose lan guage and aims in life should be any thing but of an unfriendly character. The draft law of the United States edepted for the carrying out of the high purposes had in view by the Unit ed States kept many from going to Canada during the period of the war. The citizen army of the United States was quickly mobilized, and contained a large percentage of the young men from the farms. In this way many were prevented from going to Canada. That Is all over now. There are no real or imaginary restrictions ; there Is no draft law to Interefere. On the con trary there Is an unfathomable depth of good feeling, and the long existing friendship is stronger than ever. This has been brought about by the knowl edge of what has been done In the re cent great struggle, each vying with the other in giving credit for what was accomplished. In thought and feeling, in language. In aims in life, in work. HAARLEM OIL CAPSULES IF YOUR BACK ACHES Do yon feel tired and "worn-out?" Are you nervous and irritable? Don't 6leep well at night?
